Hats of to Toyota
We bought our car in August 2014 and we have done travel of 13k km till now. We go to our home town, which is around 750 km from Indore. We visit there twice in a year. Interestingly, we don't even feel tired when we reach our destination. People say that the mileage in this car is very poor but I get around 17-19kmpl on the�highway with AC on and around 12-15kmpl in city in the same condition. I think it is enough for the engine of this size.
The high speed stability is very good in Liva. I normally drive around 110 -140 kmph on the�highway and the car feels planted and under control. I especially liked the sporty rear of the car. The rear seating is fabulous. Seating three in the back seat is not an issue at all. There is lots of legroom and shoulder room.
One suggestion would be to control engine and wind noise which can be improved by sealing the cabin more effectively. At the time of purchase, I also checked the Maruti Swift but it was 60k expensive than this one and rear seating was hopeless, legroom too is ridiculous on back seat. Besides, the back rest angle is very bad, no abs, no music system, boot space is lowest in its class at 209 litres. So I had gone for Liva and it was a good decision.
Service expenditure is very low, 2800 Rs for paid and 1300-1500 Rs when it's in warranty. Toyota's service is customer friendly.
Overall a strong package. I rate this car 9 out of 10.
